SIGNORS, BY MESNE ASSIGNMENTS, TO STERLING LUBRICATOR COMPANY, OF ROCHESTER, NEW YORK, A CORPORATION OF NEW YORK.

LUBRICATOR.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Aug. 22, 1905.

To (0 whom it may concern.-

Be it knownthat we, JOHN BUCKLEY and JOHN SHERRY, of Rochester, in the county of Monroe and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Lubricators, of which the following is a specification.

Our invention relates to force-feed lubricators, and has for its object the production of a device which is particularly simple in construction, is highly effective in use, and is capable of a maximum adjustment even when in operation; and to this end it consists in the combination, construction, and arrangement of the component parts of a force-feed lubricator,as hereinafter fully set forth,and pointed out in the claims.

In describing this invention reference is had to the accompanying drawings, in which like letters designate corresponding parts in all the views.

Figure 1 is a face view of our force-feed lubricator. Figs. 2 and 3 are sectional views taken, respectively, on lines 2 2 and 3 3, Fig. 1. Fig. 4: is a perspective of the detached governing member of our invention.

Our lubricator preferably comprises in its organization a reservoir A, a pump B, a shaft C, connected to the pump, and means for actuating said shaft and controlling the operation thereof.

The reservoir A is of any desirable form, size, and construction, and is formed with transverse chambers a a, a lateral extension (0 and a projecting arm a. Said chamber (0 extends through the upper parts of the opposite walls of the reservoir A, forms a bearing for the shaft C, (presently described,) and braces and unites said upper parts of the opposite walls of the reservoir. The chamber u, is arranged above the chamber a in a plane substantially parallel therewith, extends through the wall of one side of the reservoir A, and is formed with a closed inner end. Said lateral extension (0 projects from the base of the reservoir in alinement with the chambers a a and is provided with an internal chamber forming a lateral extension of the internal chamber of said reservoir. The arm a projects laterally from one side of the reservoir A in a plane substantially parallel with the chambers 64 (6 and eccentric to the shaft C, is adjustable longitudinally in a socket in the wall of said reservoir, and is provided at its outer extremity with a shoulder a and a nut a, screwing on said extremity toward and away from the shoulder 60* for clamping the governing member (presently described) against said shoulder, and thus securing the same in its adjusted position, and' forpermitting the desired adjustment of said governing member.

The pump B is of any desirable form, size, and construction, is supported on the extension (0 of the reservoir A, is provided with a suitable piston 6, and communicates with the internal chamber of said extension. The construction of said pump forms no part of our present'invention, and hence it is unnecessary to further describe the same herein.

The shaft C is passed through the chamber a and generally projects beyond both ends thereof. One end of the shaft C is connected to an actuating member 5', which isjournaled in the chamber a and is connected by suitable means 6 to the piston b of the pump B. The construction of said actuating member and of the means 6 between the same and the pump B also forms no part of our present invention, and hence it is unnecessary to describe the same herein.

The means for actuating the shaft C and controlling the operation thereof consists of a power-transmitting wheel 0, a rocking lever c, an actuating member 0 a connecting member 0 a governing member 0*, a hand piece 0 and a friction-piece c. Said power-transmitting wheel is suitably connected to' the shaft C, being preferably fixed to the adjacent end thereof, and is usually provided with a toothed periphery. The lever 0 is interposed between the reservoir A, and the adjacent or inner face of the wheel 0 is loosely mounted on the shaft C and generally consists of upper and lower separable sections, one being provided with a threaded socket 0 and the other having one end threaded and movable longitudinally in the socket c Said actuating member 0 usually consists of a pawl which is mounted on the upper end of the lever c and engages the toothed periphery of the wheel 0 for advancing the same step by step as the lever 0 is rocked to and fro. The actuating member 0 maybe forced into its operative position by a reciprocating plunger 0 supported by the lever 0 above a portion of the actuating member and engaged by a spring 0 for forcing said plunger toward the actuating member. The connecting member 0 consists of a reciprocating rod having one end provided with a hinged section 0 and its opposite end suitably connected to any desirable movable part (not illustrated) of the engine or other mechanism to be lubricated. Said hinged section is provided with a suitable eye or guide 0 and a clamping member 0 which respectively receive the free end of the lever c and secure the same to the connecting member 0 The governing member 0 consists of a flat disk which is interposed between the wheel 0 and the lever 0, is loosely mounted on the shaft C, and is provided with a peripheral engaging face 0 a handpiece 0, and a slot 0 The peripheral face 0 forces the actuating member 0 out of operative position as the lever 0' is rocked in one direction. The handpiece 0 preferably projects beyond the periphery of the power-transmitting wheel 0, facilitates adjustment of the governing memher, and reduces the liability of injury to the operator during said adjustment, and the slot 0" is concentric with the shaft C and receives a portion of the arm a at the inner side of the shoulder a for enabling the governing member to be interposed between the shoulder a and the nut a which hold said governing member in it adjusted position and are arranged eccentric to the axis of the powertransmitting wheel 0 and out of the path of movement of the lever c. The governing member is thus supported upon the reservoir A by the shaft C, and the arm a is readily rotated on the shaft G when the nut (a is withdrawn from its operative position and is firmly held in its adjusted position by said nut. As the governing member 0* is rotated on the shaft C the peripheral face 0 thereof is moved relatively to the actuating member 0 for varying the length of the part of the movement of said member 0 during which the member 0 is held in an inoperative position by the face 0 and thus adjusting the length of the step-by-step movements of the power-transmitting wheel 0 and the speed of rotation of the shaft G independently of the lever 0.

The hand piece 0 is connected to the outer face of the power-transmitting wheel 0 and may be readily and safely actuated during the operation of the lever c to effect the operation of the power-transmitting wheel 0 by hand independently of the lever 0 and preferably at a greater speed than the same would be operated by said lever. The frictionpiece 0 is adjustable longitudinally in an internal chamber in the handpiece 0" and projects beyond the inner face of the power-transmitting wheel into engagement with the adjacent face of the governing member for preventing undue movement of the wheel 0. The described means for actuating the shaft C and controlling the operation thereof is particularly practical, as it permits any desired adjustment of the amount of effective movement of the actuating member 0 without adjusting the position of said actuating member and also permits any desired adjustment of the operation of the lever 0' without varying the throw of' said lever and enables the operator to actuate the shaft C by the handpiece 0 independently of the lever 0 and during the operation thereof without adjustment or manipulation of the means connecting the wheel 0 and the lever c.

The construction and operation of our lubricator will now be readily understood upon reference to the foregoing description and the accompanying drawings.
